WINNER – World Documentary Award and Best Female-Directed Documentary Award at the 2016 Whistler Film Festival

Featuring four intertwining stories, we follow a rookie musher and his young dogs as they tackle and endure the 44th annual Iditarod Trail Race through Alaska’s beautiful terrain; six-month-old puppy, Lydia, as she trains to pull a sled in Ontario, Canada; the Krabloonik sled dog company and coverage of Dan MacEachen who was charged for animal cruelty in Snowmass, Colorado; and we explore the outcome of dog sledding in Whistler, BC, six years after the sled dog massacre.
